OTN – What’s Important to Test

It is becoming increasingly important to complete testing on the OTN (Optical Transport Network) at different layers and levels to ensure the underlying transport layer is performing correctly. This is necessary to ensure upper layers can transport their payload without causing any network errors. As modern operators move OTN closer to customers, all ODU (Optical channel Data Unit) layers must be tested to ensure the circuit delivers or exceeds “five 9s” performance.

OTN – Advance Testing and Dividing the Network

As operators migrate from legacy (SDH/SONET/PDH/DSn) networks to the current or future (10 GigE/1 GigE, MPLS-TP/PBB-TE) networks, today's test equipment must be able to test OTN (Optical Transport Network) as well as legacy and future networks running over OTN. Operators’ Metro to Core networks are evolving and must support all technologies both future and legacy. Testing these networks must confirm the "five 9s" performance on the OTN layer as well as from the Access to Core network—the focus of this Application Note.

802.11ad Testing with the Spectrum Master MS2760A Ultraportable Spectrum Analyzer

Until recently, one of the only options available to engineers for making spectrum analysis measurements at mmWave frequencies required using external harmonic mixers to downconvert signals into frequency ranges of available spectrum analyzers. These mixers can produce artifacts, making it difficult to distinguish between the behavior of the device under test (DUT) and the mixer. These artifacts can also add erroneous power to the signal, impacting the measurement. This is in addition to the already reduced amplitude sensitivity, frequency accuracy/stability, and the increased cost of adding the mixer. The Spectrum Master MS2760A does not use harmonic mixers in order to reach the required frequencies. By utilizing Anritsu's patented non-linear transmission line (NLTL) technology, it is capable of performing single sweep coverage from 9 kHz up to 110 GHz (model dependent). As a result, the Spectrum Master MS2760A provides a cleaner response in the mmWave bands.

Method for Evaluating Clock Recovery Tolerance to Contiguous 1s and 0s

In high-speed digital signals, a scrambling method is used with signals such as PRBS patterns to maintain a fixed transmitted signal DC Offset, to keep the ratio of 1s and 0s in the transmitted pattern, and to avoid too many contiguous 1s or 0s. An effective way of understanding the product characteristics is to run tests of Rx tolerance to contiguous 1s and 0s in an environment where such contiguous 1s and 0s rarely occur.
